The owners of Hecules put on a show for the awe inspired customers. Personally, and this is entirely personal; I don’t like it. It has gothic, devil type undertones judging by the picture at the base of this page. It seems to be portraying Hercules as some sort of devil beast, something from the mysterious underworld, when he is simply the unfortunate offspring of two captive wildcats.
There is a story (dated Sept 2010) about Jungle Island. A tiger jumped a 14 foor fence it says (they are very good jumpers so this seems feasible – just). Panic ensued and the incident is being investigated. A fine is possible. It will be a poultry maximum of $500 if the misdemeanor is proved1.
Liger Pictures – Notes:
2. We are told on the Jungle Island website that Hercules holds the Guinness World Record
